1796 10c NGC XF40 (JR-6, R.3)

DLRC #: 272029 // PCGS #: 4461

Wow! We are excited to offer a choice original example of this key early Bust dime. The surfaces are clean with the sharp details we'd expect from an XF45. We note a light planchet flaw in front of Liberty's chin, but this is trivial and as struck. Another interesting feature is a large die crack through the numeral 7 in the date. Whether seeking a first-year type coin (for all U.S. dimes!) or a date-set collector, the next owner of this coin will likely enjoy it for many years as part of a great collection.
